Bringing the green vibe to you, Ficus + Jars is an ideology of a landscape fixed in modest plots engineered by a prominent photographer Faisal Hashim and an ardent graphic designer Faizal Mahmud. Coming from an art and design background together, these green-fingered gentlemen combine the earthy elements with aesthetics to create beauty in a jar. They offer ready-made and customized terrariums, as well as DIY kits and even workshops.
From the ground up: The idea came about when both lived in apartments where space for home gardening is limited. With the discovery of planting small gardens in jars in the urban agriculture, Faisal and Faizal began to explore and stylize their own designs. What was once a mere hobby, turned into a small business. Starting small by sharing their ideas and gifts with family and friends, Ficus + Jars eventually grew through the help of social media. By the end of 2013, they’ve began selling online mainly through instragram on the account @ficusandjars. Even today their product are also available to purchase at Lazada, Camdy, Naiise Malaysia and for ready-made terrarium you get them from Ilaika Select Store.
